No, all of these horses were turned up through a Google image search, and none are Gypsy Vanners, nor do any have Gypsy breeding. I was trying to point out to the OP that just because a horse is "black and white and its pretty small" doesn't mean "Oh well that must defiantly be a gypsy vanner because it was like 15.2ft."

OP, Gypsy Vanners, not Gypsy crosses, are generally a small breed. Yes, they come in black and white. I think Bubba was confusding you with all of her pictures. If the horse you saw was small with quite a bit of feathering and a thick mane and tail, there is a good chance it could be a Gypsy Vanner, but could also possibly be a draft cross of some sort that could be contributing to the size. Crosses don't usually have an enormous amount of feathers or extraordinarily thick manes and tails though, but I guess it could happen.

Sounds like you did see a Gypsy Vanner and you are pretty sure of that. I think that is pretty clear now. And yes , they can be pretty small.

Guess that about does it.

Gypsies are usually between about 13 hands and 14.2. A Gypsy of 15.2 is fairly unusual.

Remember too, that only those Gypsies registered in the Vanner registry, are called Vanners. The majority of owners, do not call them Vanners. That was a name, coined by one breeder who started a registry.
